    1. I ve been looking forward to reading this ever since I came across the review for it in Choice when I was doing a little collection development recon for the humanities shelves in my library It s just so gorgeous to look at It s the size of a coffee table book and loaded with beautiful, full page color photography of Roman statues and artifacts The book is a companion piece to an exhibit on Hadrian put on by the British Museum, so of course the actual history presented in the text is wonderful a [...]


    2. In 2008 the British Museum had an exhibit on the Emperor Hadrian, a Roman ruler of the 2nd century AD Opper s fascinating book is the catalog from the exhibit Illustrated with artifacts from the Roman world, the book provides rich context for Hadrian s reign Although I have read extensively about Hadrian, I learned much that was new to me.


    3. A good book about one of my favorite emperors A vast collection of artifacts as well as interesting insight into the work that would have gone into making the Empire as Hadrian knew it.
